The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend its Bylaws and Certificate of Incorporation. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Mar 10, 2017 Jkt 241001 (http://www.c2exchange.com/Legal/), at the Exchange’s Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend its Bylaws and make corresponding changes to its Certificate of Incorporation. Specifically the Exchange proposes to amend its Board size range and eliminate its Compensation Committee. First, the Exchange proposes to amend its Bylaws relating to Board size range. Currently, Section 3.1 of the Bylaws provide that the Board shall consist of not less than 12 and not more than 16 directors. The Exchange proposes to change the Board size range such that the Board shall consist of no less than 5 directors. The Exchange believes the proposed change will provide greater flexibility by permitting the Board to increase or decrease the size of the board without the need to further amend the Bylaws.3 The Exchange notes that any changes in the number of directors will continue to be in all cases subject to the compositional requirements of the board set forth in the Bylaws, including its provision relating to the fair representation of members.4 The Exchange also notes that the Bylaws of other Exchanges have similar board size provisions.5 The Exchange also proposes to make conforming changes to its Certificate of 3 The Board notes that it does not at this time anticipate changing the current Board size outside of the original range of 12–16 directors. 4 See Section 3.2 of the C2 Bylaws. 5 See e.g., Fourth Amended and Restated Bylaws of BZX Exchange, Inc., Article III, Board of Directors, Section 2(a), which provides that the Board of Directors shall consist of four (4) or more Directors, the number of which would be determined by resolution of the Board. PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Incorporation. Specifically, C2 proposes to amend subparagraph (b) of Article Fifth to also provide that the Board of Directors shall consist of not less than 5 directors, and eliminate the current referenced range of 12 to 16 directors. Next, the Exchange proposes to eliminate the Exchange-level Compensation Committee. The Exchange seeks to eliminate the Compensation Committee because it believes that the Compensation Committee’s functions are duplicative of the functions of the Compensation Committee of its parent company, CBOE Holdings.6 Specifically, under its charter, the CBOE Holdings Compensation Committee has authority to assist the CBOE Holdings Board of Directors in carrying out its overall responsibilities relating to executive compensation and also, among other things, (i) recommending the compensation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and certain other executive officers and (ii) approving and administering all cash and equity-based incentive compensation plans of the Company that affect employees of the Company and its subsidiaries. Similarly, under its charter, the C2 Compensation Committee has authority to assist the C2 Board and the Parent Compensation Committee in carrying out its overall responsibilities relating to executive compensation as well as (i) recommending the compensation of certain executive officers designated by the Board whose compensation has not been, and is not expected to be, determined by the compensation committee of the Parent Board or another Board committee 7 and (ii) assist the Parent Compensation Committee in the administration of cash and equitybased incentive compensation plans of the Company that affects employees of the Company and its subsidiaries. As such, other than to the extent that the C2 Compensation Committee recommends the compensation of executive officers whose compensation is not already determined by the CBOE Holdings Compensation Committee, its activities are duplicative of the activities of the CBOE Holdings Compensation Committee. The Exchange notes that 6 The Exchange notes that the current composition of the C2 and CBOE Holdings Compensation Committees are the same. 7 The Exchange notes that pursuant to its Charter, the C2 Regulatory Oversight and Compliance Committee (ROCC) of the C2 Board recommends to the Board compensation for the Chief Regulatory Officer and any Deputy Chief Regulatory Officers. The Exchange notes that the proposed change will not affect this process. The Exchange also notes that currently not all executive officers of C2 are required to have their compensation determined by the Compensation Committee. E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1
